I had an issue with my brake light coming on and then going out again. I have just found out that my backing plate is rusted so bad that I am in need to e-brake pads and that is the reason for my light going off. You might want to look at yours and see if it is that same problem you are having. Good luck. I hope it is not this for you because it is not cheep to replace these backing plates.

Check the brake fluid level. Its probably low.
